Plane almost crashes

Has anyone seen this video yet? The Pilot did a GREAT JOB getting it back off the ground! I originally saw it on Yahoo yesterday and it said he was fighting a 155MPH crosswind. Check it out. It was in Hamburg, Germany

I saw that on the news and couldn't believe it. That pilot did a heck of a job saving the day. I wonder if the airlines gave out new undies at the terminal?

being an Aircraft Mechanic, i have learned alot about how planes fly and what they are structurely capable of so i am a little more at ease when i fly. but the first time i flew, i looked out the window and saw the wingtips flexing like 18 inches up and down. i almost crapped. i give that pilot kudos for being able to pull that one off. My best time flying was when i got my flight in an F-16 while i was stationed at Luke AFB. imagine how it feels to have a 3/4 inch thick plastic canopy bubble between you and the outside air going Mach 1. pretty crazy!

I love flying, but my heart might have skipped a beat when I saw that wing tip throwing up pebbles!

Apparently the Pilot saw this video and thought the Airbus was as capable as a 747.
